Faculty Service Descriptions
Law School faculty are assigned a reference librarian to serve as a personal liaison to the library and its various services. Liaison librarians provide a single point of contact for library needs, engage in collection building to support your scholarship, and can also provide specialized professional expertise to assist with your scholarly endeavors.
Services that can be provided by faculty liaisons include: training for student Research Assistants; advice and assistance in planning and executing research projects; help with bibliographies or literature surveys; research classes (during or outside of your regular class time); requests for library acquisitions or new library services; and assistance with research tools or research technology. Liaisons are not necessarily the staff members who will provide requested library services, but they will connect you with the appropriate library contact and/or oversee library performance in responding to your service request.
Faculty with questions about liaison services or their liaison assignment should contact Andy Dorchak, Head of Reference.
The following table lists liaison assignments for full-time faculty and visiting faculty. Most liaison assignments are made from the “core” of the reference department: Mr. Dorchak, Ms. Cheatham, Ms. Kaul, and Ms. Peters.
